The Colwood Garden Society invites you to join them in the Colwood Community Garden at City Hall this Saturday, September 15 at 9:30 am.
Bring any cardboard you can scrounge, shovels, cordless drills, and any perennial plant donations to the communal gardens.
Why a community garden?
The City of Colwood is supporting our local community to create a community garden on City Hall property, because community gardens encourage healthy outdoor activity, positive social interaction, protection and use of open space and all the benefits that come with growing local food: healthy eating, lower food costs, a renewed connection to nature, and community resilience if faced with food shortages or a large scale emergency.
Let's grow together!
Become a member for $10 and rent your plot for $45 for a full season of gardening, growing, learning and socializing.
Volunteers are vital for the garden to be successful. In addition to helping out in the garden, there are opportunities to be an active member of the society board and committees.
Donations are welcome. If you have gardening skills, tools or materials to donate, or would like to support the community garden financially, please contact the Society.
